I grew up eating this yeast raisin bread. My aunt showed me how to make is when I was younger, and I am so grateful she did. I don’t make it as often as I should considering it is one of Grant’s favorite things. His family told me that before we were married or even dating he would hoard it and not share it with the rest of them whenever I made it. Yeast shouldn’t be as intimidating as some people make it out to be. This recipe is very easy and fun, I encourage you to make it yourself. I have also made it in the bread maker as well.
I don’t know if you have ever eaten at Z Tejas, but it is a restaurant in Austin, TX that has some great food. I like everything I have tried,but really like their cornbread.
Grant is not a huge sweets person, I am,but I wish I wasn’t! So, one of the things that Grant does like and actually asks for are these blue berry muffins. I have to say they are pretty darn amazing!
I know I have been posting a lot of recipes lately,but baking and cooking is what I spend a lot of time on. Currently, I have been on a sewing streak ,since Grant is out of town for his training,working on my first ever coat. I am terrified that I will mess it up so I am making a muslin version to make sure it fits right before I spend too much money on expensive fabric and lining. Â As well as hemming and fixing lots of our clothes. Grant and I haven’t had a clothes budget in over 2 years now because we really didn’t need clothes; only problem is, after two years of constant wear things just start to wear out. Anyway, below is a great recipe for Cappuccino Muffins! This is a recipe that I got from my sister Tanya who is a great cook and baker! Honestly, I would rather just eat the batter because it is SOOO good, but the muffins baked are even better.
Growing up, I spent a lot of time at my friend Cara’s house. Her mom made homemade bread for the family every week. She even ground her own grains to make it worth the price. I love her regular bread a lot,but the cinnamon raisin swirl version was AMAZING! I finally was able to get her recipe, and I have made it twice for Grant, and there was never very much left. Below you can see step by step pictures and then the list of ingredients with all of the instructions. I hope you enjoy it!
